3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent floral hop aroma coming off a clear pale yellow body with a soapy white head. The flavor is very light in the style of a light lager (Tsingtao came to mind), but fresher and crisper than most. There’s a very light sweetness and maltiness, and some floral hop bitterness, but all is light here. The absolute most impressive thing about this beer is that it tastes like real beer, not like the usual sorghum-based gluten-free stuff. My brother has Celiac disease and he says there’s some controversy about how gluten-free this actually is, but I’m hoping that it is and that he can drink this and enjoy real beer again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from the 3300 S State Store. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A light nose of floral hops and biscuit. Pretty decent, clean, light fruit, big sweet grains. Totally different than other gluten free beers. Quite good in that sense.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer is a crystal clear pale yellow color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly bitter floral hops, biscuit malt and grass. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Run of the mill overall.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
The beer is a clear golden color with a white head. Some citrus peel notes and a touch of floral hops. A mild breadiness with a bit of cracker aroma. Maybe a bit of grass on the back end. The flavor is somewhat bland and has a touch of paper to it. Some light grain sweetness. There is a subtle but noticeable hop presence, mostly floral in nature but hints of grass and citrus peel are also there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral, grain and fruit aroma. Light to medium balanced sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Short to medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Soft beer that was worth having once.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear golden bier. Pours with a pure white head. The aroma is like a light pilsner, grassy and balanced with light malt notes and bitter hops. The flavor has the same characteristics but is comes on a little stronger than the aroma would have you initially think. Due to this, the body seems a little heavy for the appearance. I can’t tell its gluten free, and its a decent drink falling somewhere between a premium lager and a czech pilsner.

(tasting at Des Peres Schnucks) gold with white head. Aroma of light malt, hint of floral hops. Flavor is similar. A nice option for those who can’t ingest gluten.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Gold bodied with a short, fading white head. Aroma is rather hoppy and pleasant with soft grain-like notes and floral notes. Taste is also hoppy with slightly fruity undertones, grain-like notes and hints of biscuit and bread dough. Light lemony notes as well. Body is light-medium with a mild, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more floral and grassy hops, sweet malt-like flavors, soft fruit and faint biscuit.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle poured into glass. Since this is my first gluten free beer I’m gonna try to be as kind as I can. The color is a light yellow with tints of orange. The aroma reminds me of a bathroom off the interstate, somewhat like urine. Flavor is actually flavorless. Boring with no character.
